and at the capitol flying at half staff today in memory of the united states ambassador, christopher stevens, and three other americans killed last night at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. president obama has ordered that flags fly at half staff across the united states and at embassies around the world until sunday night. >>> i'm wolf blitzer in for piers morgan. earlier today the republican challenger, mitt romney, blasted president obama for what he characterized as, quote, an apology for america's values over the storming of the u.s. embassy in cairo. >> an apology for america's values is never the right course. >> the president fired right back in an interview tonight with cbs news. >> governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and name later, and as president, one of the things i've learned is you can't do that. you know, it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you've thought through the ramifications before you make them. >> and there are late-breaking developments right now. two u.s. navy warships o
. a shocking death. a united states ambassador in libya dead today. the obama administration taking steps now this hour to beef up security at embassies around the world. after this veteran diplomat christopher stevens along with three of his american staffers were murdered by a mob in benghazi, libya. the attack yesterday was apparently triggered by a film, a film produced by an american by the name of sam basil. considered by many to be highly offensive to islam. again, a film. these murders taking place in a country that the united states helped to liberate from the dictator moammar gadhafi and a mob attacked the embassy in cairo, egypt, yesterday. climbing the embassy walls. tearing down and ripping apart the united states flag. it's unclear if the attacks were koord natded or plans to con side with the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks here in america. but moments ago, our president obama spoke out about these killings. >> the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats. i've alwa
it because he loved the work. he really thought the mission of the united states to help these fragile countries move ahead, start anew, that's what he really loved about libya. from the time that he was working to restore ties with the libyan government to being an envoy to the opposition and helping the rebels on the ground in bengzi, to now becoming the u.s. ambassador to libya, he really was someone that felt it was really important to kind of -- the democratic values and need to build proper institutions and try and have a peaceful stable country. >> we understand that he was really regarded in some ways as a hero to the rebels and the people in benghazi in particular. how did he feel? how comfortable did he feel moving around in libya? >> he felt very comfortable. that's what a lot of people are talking about today that maybe he felt a little too comfortable. chris was someone that felt very at ease in benghazi. he knew the area well. he knew the country well. so he might have not -- he might have felt a little bit more immune than some other people would to his safety because he
. >> the cruel irony here is that the united states is well-regarded in libya. and there's a moderate government in place. and this is clearly the actions of an isolated and very small but very vicious terrorist group. and so we've got to protect ourselves from those groups. and we've got to go after them. >> reporter: and, wolf, as i said, we're expecting momentarily a briefing background here at the state department. there are a lot of details. everyone that we talk to says that it was a very, very complex almost chaotic situation. fighting on the outside. fire on the inside. and so we expect to have more details as we go along. >> and so far we've only been told the names of chris stephens and sean smith. the other two they have not released their names yet, is that right? >> yes. they were security officials. >> not u.s. marines though? >> reporter: no. we understand were not marines. they were security personnel. >> let us know what happens at this background briefing you're about to get. and you'll update our viewers. standby for that. jill dougherty. let's go to nic robertson now in londo
there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is keeping tabs on the u.s. military's response to what's going on as well. let's go to jill first. she's watching what's going on. jill, what's the latest over at the state department beyond the heartbreak of a top u.s. diplomat, three others killed? >> right, wolf. just in a few minutes we're expecting an update, a briefing on background by senior officials here at the state department. but for now this is what we know based on the conversations and what we are hearing from u.s. officials. tuesday night at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, a complex and highly dangerous situation. outside an anti-american protest. then a group of heavily armed militants, approximately two dozen of them, launched an attack firing ro
to the job as president of the united states. you heard in those two phone calls what this is such a divided race. >> two key factors with general elections, one is a money the republican support that will far outspend. but democrats will say that they have a better ground campaign. >> i would rather have more money than less. the democrats had more money in 2008. they bragged about it then and it was a bigger advantage. ground teams are hard to measure until election day. in 2010, the democrats ground teams did not help them much, did they? in 2008, they had a candid but that really captured the heart of the country. both parties really understand how to microtarget people based on things we buy and our past voting and purchasing behavior. they can identify not only who you are, but what specific messages that need to be spoken to you or e-mail to you to get you to move one way or the other on the political spectrum. they know how to find us now. they know where to reach us and they know what to say to us. both parties will have a pretty strong ground game. the fact that republicans have mo

barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own time in the white house. but another speech tonight could make or break the democrats' hope for keeping control of the united states senate. elizabeth warren is challenging republican senator scott brown in massachusetts. coming up in this hour, we'll hear praise of bill clinton from someone you might not expect. >> coming from the republicans, vice presidential candidate paul ryan sat down with cnn's piers morgan to compare the clinton and obama presidencies. the two presidents have not always been close, obviously. our chief national correspondent john king covered the clinton white house for us. >> these two presidents, the former president and president obama are more than at peace now. you may say both men share a little bit of numbers
american diplomats. >> no reaction yet regarding the reaction by the united states. but, anderson, earlier today, we heard from senior government officials, the former prime minister, now of libya, and the speaker of parliament, holding a press conference, strong condemnation, of the attack vowing to bring the speaker to justice, saying this attack c n coincided with september 11th, believing there was a link there, hence it was carried out by islamic extremist groups that operate in eastern libya, and saying that libya will not allow the revenge attacks against the west, and at the same time, saying they will need the help of the international community in confronting these groups, people here, anderson, really shocked by what happened. many libyans are really saddened by this attack, and hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice. >> the state department, we saw a very grave secretary of state clinton done demming the attacks. cnn has confirmed it was a planned attack. the attack in benghazi, libya. what more are we learning about the attacks and the measures the state department
in and see him. him is the president of the united states. he's very much a junior partner. that is the new vice presidency. and that's what's really changed. it began under mondale and was that way to our country -- well, it wasn't so useful under cheney but i think now the vice president is a junior partner. he's explained to barack obama. looking up to him as a smarter guy, perhaps a tougher guy. but certainly with great loyalty. >> ed shultz, we're leading up to the president's speech. what are your impressions there? >> he was trying really hard tonight. he was trying to get as emotionally connected to the audience as he possibly could. it wasn't his smoothest performance, but it was effective. you could tell the crowd was involved. they know this man. they know what he's about. he's a genuine guy. high on sincerity, believable. i thought it was good testimony to the president. >> chris? >> i don't think we've seen that pitch of the president so far. the idea that it's about his judgment and what's in his gut and this kind of undescribable part of his being that can make the right call
-- of our warriors have been wounded. romney thought of the decision of the president of the united states, we have other countries working with us, nato and afghanistan. the president organized it. all 50 of them said it is time to hand over responsibility to the afghans and bring our 90,000 troops home. what did romney say? he said, that was a mistake. i have seen these warriors. i have traveled in and out of afghanistan and iraq over 20 times. i have seen these kids -- not kids, i have seen these men and women. i have been in the operating base above the mountains and the valley with six kids getting shot at every single night. cold and people off. i have been out there in those armored humvees, the scorching desert. i wish every american could see what i saw on the strips. they raise their right hand with a recruiter and said, i want to join, knowing almost certainly that they would go to iran or afghanistan. -- iran or afghanistan. this is one of the finest generations in the history of america. they should be recognized. and they are.

in the united states of america! a convention not just of symbolism, but of substance. this is the first time that a major party platform recognizes marriage equality as a basic human right! >> the los angeles mayor, who is also the chair of the 2012 democratic national convention committee. now more from president obama's speech. >>> this is the choice we now face. this is what the election comes down to. over and over we've been told by our opponents that bigger tax cuts and fewer regulations are the only way, that since government can't do everything, it should do almost nothing. if you can't afford health insurance, hope that you don't get sick. if a company releases toxic pollution into the air, your children breathe, well, that's the price of progress. if you can't afford to start a business or go to college, take my oppent's advice and borrow money from your parents. you know what? that's not who we are. that's not what this country is about. as americans, we believe we are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, rights that no man or government can take away. we insist
when you're president of the united states. but if there were a word cloud about this speech, the word choice would have been up there a million times. what the president needed to do, and they're hammering it. this is not delicate. they want this election to be a choice between two visions for the country. by the way, i'm the more experienced guy in foreign policy. a lot of osama bin laden tonight. >> there were two great quotes. one was john kerry. ask bin laden if he's better off than four years ago. and joe biden, the familiar trump sky, bin laden dead, general motors alive. the auto industry, they're hammering this now, john. they're going after that crowd so they can hit michigan, ohio, the workers, the car people. >> look, it's an overstatement to say you had a three-day convention and it was about two states. but the president understands the map. if he can keep michigan, and win ohio, which is a toss-up right now, it's almost impossible for governor romney to win when you do the piece by piece 270 electoral map. so what is the criticisms of the president, that he's not fightin
will win this election, finish what we started and remind the world why the united states is the greatest nation on earth. >> the great debate five days away. why romney has to win and why obama can't afford to lose. i'll talk to my political a-team. also, bibi and the bomb. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us. plus, have you seen chelsea lately? >> nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. >> one of my favorites guests is back. >> i'm single, yes. >> if men are watching this -- >> yeah, i'm available. you know, just call me maybe. >> funny, feisty as ever, with a new look for her talk show. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story, the great debate. in just five days the event that could change the race for the white house permanently. the clock is ticking and the candidates know it. they meet face-to-face on wednesday. this weekend, both will be locked behind closed doors in practi
dangerous country in the world. and the number one threat to the united states is iran acquiring a nuclear weapon. the suggestion by prime minister netanyahu that the united states should set a red line and say in advance that we would use force if iran achieved a certain level of progress in its nuclear effort doesn't make a lot of sense to me. this is a question of war and peace. and both president obama and president bush have tried to say we need to negotiate with iran and have the ability to sanction it and use force if necessary, but you don't want to put yourself into a corner and use force based on actio and a predetermined level as what the iranians do. so i think president obama is right here to resist that. and israel should know that the united states has its back as the president has said and the united states will do what it must do to stop iran. but let the united states make that decision, not some preimposed red line. i think that makes sense for america. >> president obama on " 6/0 minutes" on sunday said this. let's play a clip. >> and it comes to our national security d
the race there, really. and that underdogs usually get on the stage with the president of the united states, they feel that vibe, they're at parity and i think she basicsly broadcasting it's okay and we expect it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this coul
of the united states. you get called in to account. >> now, he's in an urgent fight to finish what he started. >> we will remind the world why this is the greatest nation on earth. >> in charlotte tonight, barack obama officially accepts the challenge of winning his second term and defends his administration against republican attacks. >> it is not his words that people have to listen to, it is his action and his record. >> i've got one piece of advice for you about the romney/ryan game plan. punt it away. >> joe biden also accepts his nomination tonight. >> we must continue to move forward. >> a week after mitt romney's convention in tampa, democrats are trying to get the last word. >> all of a sudden, their heart was bleeding for the middle class, whoa. >> now, cnn turn, the spotlight on one of the biggest platforms in american politics. this is the democratic national convention. this is barack obama and joe biden's night. >> i believed in you. i bet on you. i'll make that bet any day of the week. that bet is paying off for america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our
of economic might. according to the annual survey from the world economic forum, the united states of america has slipped to seventh in competitiveness down from number one in 2008 when president obama was elected to the white house. joining me now, lou dobbs, host of "lou dobbs tonight" on fox business network and a syndicated radio host. and the headline in the albuquerque journal is, dear america: nobody shouts, we're number seven! [laughter] number seven! >> well, we could start a shout too. we're also number 14, number 29 whether we're talking about mathematics and natural sciences test scores. ball of it comes down o this -- but all of it comes down to this reflection of not being able to shout -- megyn: why is the world economic forum telling us we're so much less competitive than we used to be? >> they seem to perceive a certain mistrust on business and this government. i don't know where they got that. they seem to have noticed we're $16 trillion in debt which exceeds our national gross domestic product. megyn: talk about the credit downgrade. >> the credit downgrade which, by the wa
the bus. now we've seen a very different timeline from israel and the united states from netanyahu. netanyahu says within months iran will have gone beyond the point of no return. american intelligence believes there's more time. where do we stand now with israel and is mitt romney -- >> we stand -- >> that the president has thrown israel under the bus? >> well, first of all, the term throwing israel under the bus is really a remarkable -- you know, it's an unbelievably cynical explosivetive term that is also a lie. it is a fundamental lie. and mitt romney ought to be ashamed of himself for continuing to say it when he knows that prime minister netanyahu and defense minister ehud barak have both said this administration has the strongest security and military cooperation with israel it has ever had. ever. and the president has taken steps to put america in a position to deal with iran with whatever eventuality may be necessary, and i mean whatever eventuality may be necessary. the president made that crystal clear in his speech at the united nations. and, yesterday, prime minister
our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." and we're live from the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. weather kept this big closing night indoors instead of the planned mass stadium rally. but the energy is already building for the climax of this convention. president obama's acceptance speech. bi clinton certainly set the stage last night with a powerful rousing address. now it's up to president obama to deliver. and what he says here just a few hours from now could have a huge impact on whether he gets another four years in the white house. so we're just moments away from the day's opening gavel. you'll see it all here unfolding live. president obama says he'll share his vision for the future tonight. and his aides say he'll offer some concrete proposals at the same time. but what does he need to say in this crucial appearance, gloria borger, candy crowley are both here. the challenge for him, we know he's a great order, there will be poetry and pros and all of that, but the country wants some sub

tell me back in june, even then, the united states was flying surveillance drone missions over and above those camps in the east of libya. >> nic robertson, thank you very much. this crisis was just unfolding when mitt romney released this statement. it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged ate tacks. the campaign started drawing fire from democrats and republicans. dana bash joins us from capitol hill. dana, this is getting nasty, but the question is, what sort of political gain, if anything, is in it for the romney campaign to release such a statement so soon? >> reporter: that's a question that's actually being asked by some republicans, not just democrats. to be clear it's democrats who are jumping on this big time, don. because of the fact that they know that voters aren't necessarily going to vote on foreign policy, but they know this is a question of crisis and leadership and mitt romney is somebody with no foreign policy experience. that's why they jumped
